This course provides an opportunity for the counselor-in-training to begin to develop and refine their individual and group counselingskills within the functional milieu of a clinical mental health or school setting. All practicum activities are closely supervised by university and field-based supervisors. Prior to entry into the course, all students must provide to the instructor verification of having current professional liability insurance. The WSU Counselor Education Program as well as CACREP requires students to complete a supervised counseling practicum of a minimum of 100 hours. Forty (40) of those clock hours must be direct service work with appropriate clients. The remaining 60 hours provide opportunities to gain experience in the activities that a regularly employed staff member in a counseling setting would be expected to perform.
